At What Age Do Infants Learn To Bang Two Blocks Together
6 months: Infants generally start to grasp objects around 5 months of age, and often pass them back and forth between their hands around 5.5 months. Keep in mind that some kids are a little early and some kids are a little late. Plus or minus 1 month or so is still appropriate. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
SIDS: I would say this is an alte, or an apparent life threatening event vs. Surviving sids. It is reasonable to say if your brain was without oxygen for a significant amount of time than it is possible that later there could be a ld.
